The Way of the Superior Man
by David Deida
If you are only going to read one book about relating with women and being a man, make sure it is The Way Of The Superior Man. My understanding of women, and my tendencies as a man, were much more clear after reading this book. Though peppered with flowery language (which you will have to learn to translate into practical information), this book has both philosophical and practical information in it. I have applied the principles in this book to my relationships to make them stronger and more satisfying.

King, Warrior, Magician, Lover: Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine
by Robert Moore and Douglas Gillette
The authors of this book dissect the 4 archetypes of a mature man: the King, the Warrior, the Magician, and the Lover. These four archetypes are based on Jungian psychology, which means it is legit and stuff. The real value in this book is that the authors describe the archetypes of boys that lead into these archetypes of man.
This book will point out four ways to look at what it means to be a man. It will also point out the boy-like behavior that can impede anyone from reaching this vision of manhood.
It’s time for us to grow up, and this book will show us what that means, and how it can take shape for any man.

The Inner Game Of Tennis
by Timothy Gallway
Timothy Gallway starts out writing a book about tennis, and ends up writing a book about how to excel at any undertaking. As I read this book, I realized that many of the teachings in this book apply just as well to succeeding with women and making changes in your life as they do to succeeding in sports. This book will guide you through the mental challenges that we all face when trying to achieve anything, and how we can use the natural tendencies that we all face to achieve more, better, faster.

Art Of Deception
by Kevin Mitnick
This isn’t an instructional book so much as it is a good entertaining book. The author spent years as a social hacker, talking and tricking his way into sensitive and private information. He talks his way into the biggest and smallest of companies, and shows how vulnerable we are to assault by those that approach us as credible and trustworthy. This book won’t teach you how to succeed with women, but if you have any interest in social and human dynamics, you will be entertained by this book.
